Uci Mtb World Cup Entry Info

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Wed 29/Apr/09 3:01pm

Athletes intending to enter World Cups this season who do not have the minimum 20 UCI points required should register their interest by contacting MTBNZ Performance (Chris Mildon chris.mildon@gmail.com or 021 2309120). Expressions of interest need to be recieved before Friday May 8th to allow allocations to be made.

The criteria applied to allocating the six discretionary NZ National Team spots is as follows:

Athletes are reminded that entry to all of the 2009 UCI World Cup is strictly on the basis of:
1. Being a member of a UCI registered trade team,
2. Having accrued at least 20 UCI points in the athletes chosen MTB discipline by the closing registration date of each UCI World Cup round, or
3. Being selected to enter on the basis of six (6) discretionary entries each UCI National Federation has for each MTB discipline.

The following is in regard to how the six (6) discretionary entries will be allocated.

For DHI, XCO and 4X the six (6) spots in each discipline will be allocated as follows:
1. Priority allocation will be given to selected U19 members of the 2009 World Champs MTB Team
2. Secondary allocation will be given to selected U23 and Elite members of the 2009 World MTB Team
3. Remaining allocation to U19, U23 and Elite categories will be given on the basis of:
(a) misfortune through injury or other reasons for non-performance (for instance mechanical problems) in the 2009 National and Oceania Championships,
(b) for riders with previously demonstrated performance, or
(c) for athletes that have been identified as having development prospects.

Important Notes:

1. Discretionary places for the UCI World Cups will be decided by the MTB Selection Panel.
2. As there is no selection policy for UCI World Cups these positions can not be appealed.
3. UCI MTB World Cup entry forms are to be processed through Hughie Castle at BikeNZ.
4. Once discretionary places have been awarded the MTB Selection Panel will contact the selected athletes - a NZ National Team jersey is required to be worn (at the respective UCI World Cups) by athletes selected and entered through this discretionary process.

yes but the series runs until august or some time so there is still quite a few Kiwi riders looking at heading over to have a crack at a few of the europe races.
